Don't learn how to code just to change your life

2019-01-07


If you decided that 2019 will be the year you learn how to code, congratulations. Just don’t expect that coding will give you everything you ever hoped for in return.

If you think coding is going to get you rich, land you a job with a hot tech company, turn you into the next guest on YC podcast, then you’re in it for all the wrong reasons.

Instead...

If you’re coding for a bigger paycheck, or for some of the wrong reasons mentioned before, you’ll hate coding!

But if you set your mind right from the start, you’ll know what an amazing feeling it is to code for all the right reasons.

Don’t learn to code just to change your life. Learn to code because you genuinely want to learn how to code.
